Soldiers burned items seized from a school in Diffa(not far from Kumba) where suspected secessionists had camped.
An armed gang had infested the buildings of a school not far from Kumba. This Wednesday, soldiers reclaimed the school from the hands of seccessionists fighters who camped there via an intense altercation.
The school establishment; consisting of two buildings, including one built of temporary materials, was used by these individuals for accommodation purposes.
Nineteen firearms were found on the site as well as a gas cylinder, drums with a capacity of over 200 liters each containing gasoline, mattresses, clothing, cooking pots, and equipment for the preparation of portions.
￼The school was released from the claws of the separatists after an intense exchange of gun fire between suspected secessionists and defense forces in the Diffa -Kake 1-Kake2 zone.
The area is almost empty now, because of the frequent clashes that occur there. The people have sheltered in bushes or nearby towns.
